Find the solution of the exponential equation:

4^8x = 16^x+8

I have tried starting by using exponent laws and breaking the equation down into:

. One way- To find the solution of the equation - 48 x = 16( x+8) 48 x = (4 2 ) ( x+8) ( as 16 = 4 2 ) 48 x = 4( 2 x+16 ) (because (a m ) n = a mn ) Since the base are the same equating the exp...
